Dear Members of this August Forum,


In a major development , the Sehwag International School, Silani Jhajjar, Haryana has admitted to have been under RTI Act 2005 on undersigned Complaint case number 1802 of 2015 before the Hon'ble State Information Commission, Haryana.


The undersigned filed RTI application on 12th May 2014 seeking information from The Krishna Drishti Education Society (Running Sehwag International School in Jhajjar,Haryana)about total number of seats in all classes, seats vacant under EWS (economically weaker sections), seats available under EWS, date of receiving of application under EWS quota & name & details of beneficiary students under EWS.


The Sehwag International School has been substantially subsidized by Government of Haryana as 33 Acres of Land has been provided for Rs 4250/per month (for 33 Acres of Land). The Circle rate of that at that time was Rs 30 Lacs per Acre and thus 33 Acres X Rs. 30 Lac = Rs.9.90 Crore land was given at Rs 4250/- per month against the bank interest on Rs 10 Crore @ 1% comes to Rs 10 Lac per month thus giving benefit of Rs. 9.96 Lac per month to Sehwag International School, Jhajjar and as such the School is substantially financed by State Government and is a public authority under Section 2(h)(d)(ii) of RTI Act 2005.


The Sehwag International School did not provide any information and thus filed first appeal before management of the School which too did not provide any information.


Aggrieved filed Complaint under Section 18 of RTI Act 2005 before Hon'ble State Information Commission, Haryana. The learned Administrative Officer of Sehwag International School denied of receiving the undersigned RTI application and appeal.

I presented my set of arguments and learned Administrative officer of Sehwag International School did not dispute the undersigned arguments and provided the information thus conceding to be under RTI Act 2005.

The Hon'ble Y P Gupta, State Information Commissioner, Haryana accepted Sehwag International School contention of being under RTI Act 2005 and noted that since Sehwag International School has provided information under RTI Act 2005 and hence undersigned Complaint is ALLOWED.

      I had sought details of loan and copies of agreement entered with World Bank, JICA etc. of IT Expressway Chennai (created in partnership with Govt of TN) However the PIO has replied that they have moved out of world bank loan and taken loan from other banks details of which cannot be disclosed under 8(1) d of RTI Act citing "commercial confidence".
      However the IT Expressway is a public limited company having entered into agreement with Govt of TN and others for developing and maintaining a particular stretch of road.
      Kindly help me frame a good first appeal.

      I require help on co-operative issue. I had filed the RTI with the PIO, Dy registrar of co-op societies seeking information on affairs of society.
      The PIO has replied stating that the information I am seeking is available with co-operative society. My query is:
      1] Can PIO direct an applicant to private body for information?
      2] The society in question comes under the jurisdiction of the PIO, since PIO is public authority and co-operative society a private body, is it not duty of PIO to seek information from society and give it to me? How can PIO direct me back to society? This is RTI application, either I have to appeal or I have to forego. I cannot complaint against reply. So I want to approach FAA, under what grounds can I?
      3] What kind of violation PIO has committed by directing me back to private society? 
      4] Does co-operative society come under the purview of RTI ACt?
      Your views are appreciated. I am fighting lone battle with corrupt system.
